Your Hosts

Small Luxury Hotel New Zealand

Meet your hosts at Kauri Point Homestay, Taupo.

As hosts of a small luxury hotel in New Zealand, Gail and Robert Corfe are dedicated advocates of the relaxed, open lifestyle, fresh cuisine and wine and inspiring countryside that is New Zealand. They reflect this passion in their luxury Taupo homestay Kauri Point, making it a true star among the country’s 5 star hotels. Like most residents of Taupo, Gail (a midwife) and Robert (formerly a farmer and Buston) arrived from somewhere else (in their case England). They promptly fell in love with the magnificent and invigorating environment that living ‘upside down’ on the edge of the world’s largest crater lake offers.

Gail and Robert believe that travel to any country should be memorable, involving tasting the unique culture, cuisine and countryside in an authentic way. At boutique hotel and homestay Kauri Point you get exactly that. Enjoy the warm atmosphere at the lodge and share your experiences with guests from around the world.

Gail, Robert and their English Springer Spaniel are looking forward to welcome you and share their home. Daughter Ellie, who is a chef, may be brought in to assist Mum with that special dinner.
